The following details apply to all of our forthcoming events. Full details of events are available on request and booking forms are available by telephoning 01584 873206. Bookings should be accompanied by a non-refundable £60 deposit (£80 for beginners' courses and 3/5 night breaks, £125 for the Channel Islands) which is payable by credit card or cheque made payable to Begin Bridge. Should your booking be made less than 4 weeks before the event, then full payment is required at the time of booking. The price for each break includes dinner bed and breakfast together with all bridge sessions and prizes or tuition. For seminars and one day events, full payment is required when booking.
Many of the hotels we use offer special rates should you wish to extend your stay by an extra night or two or arrive early. All the hotels have their own private car park. Most of our breaks start at 5.45pm on the first evening with a sherry reception followed by dinner and bridge. There will usually then be 3 further bridge sessions during the break and 2 seminars finishing at approximately 4.30pm on the final afternoon. To help the newcomer to Begin Bridge, all the hotels we use have very pleasant dining rooms and our clients usually change for dinner. Your hotel room will normally be available by 2.30pm on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 11am on the day of departure. Facilities are available to store your luggage if necessary. Some hotels agree to rooms being kept beyond the usual check out time subject to a small supplement.
Whilst every event has a full itinerary of bridge all sessions are optional should you wish, for instance, to go out during the day and only play bridge in the evening. However we would ask you to be in the bridge room at least 5 minutes before the start of play if you do wish to play in a particular session. The programme for beginners' courses, tuition breaks and longer holidays is slightly different but full programmes are sent out 2-3 weeks before the event, which we would ask you to read carefully.View Our Events Calendar
